Scott Monty - Strategic Communications & Leadership Advisor

I had noticed that my blogroll in my sidebar was horribly out of date. I've discovered many new voices over the last 6 months or so (the last time I think I updated it) and I wanted something to reflect my current reading - AND something that didn't require a manual update.

So I checked out my Google Reader and found that I could tag the blogs that I'd like to share and create a blogroll directly from my OPML file. This is in addition to the individual articles that I share through my reader. You'll find it over in the sidebar, as well as below.

Here's how I managed to update my blogroll in 5 easy steps:

  1. Log into Google Reader
  2. Select any blog you'd like to share and add a tag (I used "Blogs I Like")
  3. Then click on "Manage subscriptions" at the bottom of the page
  4. Select the blogs you'd like to include and tag them
  5. Under the Tags tab, click on "add a blogroll to your site"

From there, you can format it and do what you need to do using your blog's platform.

Happy reading!
